Khao lak Merlin hotel beach

One of the reviews of this hotel states there are no sun beds on the beach, but on a grass verge. Is this grassy area next to the beach so one gets the feeling of being on the beach?

Hope someone can help

Thanks

Thank,you Mossy, very helpful.

Originally we were looking for all inclusive adult only hotel. The Sensimar is adult only on b&b basis and Merlin is AI families welcome. These two hotels seem to be the best option for us and our friends. Merlin gets such good reviews and hopefully is not over-run with children. Our criteria for a holiday now, after lots of experience, is on a beach no children. In Thailand the options aren't the same as the Caribbean obviously. So we are being careful with our choices!

HI

most resorts are family friendly in Thailand unless you get an exclusive resort like The Sarojin which have a no children under 12 policy!

we have stayed at Merlin 2x and returning for our third stay in Oct, can't wait :) it has a happy mix of everything for everyone, and not over run with children at all lol (I know where you are coming from on that one haha )

we stayed in the pool access rooms with access into the top pool which is beautiful and quiet

I am sure that you won't be disapointed with Merlin,

have a great holiday :)

Even though it is in a fairly small area there are plenty of eateries round abouts if you do book B&B which will give you greater choice, especially for a la carte Thai meals as opposed to probably buffet that usually comes with AI.

The grassed area where the sun beds are located is separated from the beach by a arrow promenade that runs from the Merlin in front of the adjacent hotels. It is a large area do you are not lying side by side with other guests.
